Clean slate without prejudice program in Redfern a success

A boxing program called Clean slate without prejudice has seen good results since it began in Redfern, New South Wales, in June 2009. Initiated by the Superintendent of the Redfern police force, Luke Freudenstein, in collaboration with local Aboriginal leaders, the program targets Indigenous youths at risk of offending. This includes those who have committed a crime but have not yet been sentenced, those incarcerated in Juvenile Justice Centres, and young offenders who have been released back into the community.
